I recently watched a video of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER/BATTLESTAR GALACTICA/TORCHWOOD writer Jane Espenson where she discussed the women of DOCTOR WHO and the conversation turned to the subject of a female Doctor (with Espenson suggesting that ANGEL alum Amy Ackerson would be a perfect casting choice) and it inspired me to do my own bit of wishful casting. So click onward to see my Top 5 choices of who I think would make pretty cool lady Doctors.

Murray is a favorite of mine, having appeared and been really impressive, on several shows I watch regularly (SPARTACUS, DEXTER, WAREHOUSE 13) and is currently starring on the new SyFy series DEFIANT. It was on WAREHOUSE 13 that she played H.G. Wells (who it turned out was a lady!) and that role was very Who-like. She was a genius who could whip up any gadget to cover any situation which sounds just like The Doctor to me.
